Hi Mike

First is a White Helleborine and the second is almost certainly Common Spotted orchid.

Thankyou both, I did have a certain amount of luck today. This is another site I will have to go back to for the common spotted when it flowers after all the rosette is superbly marked.
Kind regards Mike
